"Magicians DEAD"

At Taito's booth, Viking had announced a new arcade game "Magicians DEAD". This is a multi-player game where you can become a super psychic (psychic) ​​or a magician and fight in teams. A large number of people take part in the city stage, and battles are carried out against opponents using super powers and magic. The game chassis incorporates a non-contact motion sensor that senses the movement of the player's hand and allows the movement of the hand to be linked in the actual game to attack, defend, and manipulate things. . Just like movies and comics, you can stick out your hands and throw away things far away, or put out a flame from your fingertips. Since I took a video of what I was actually playing, you should be able to see how you can operate it by moving your hand.

Although this work can be played with the feeling of becoming a super-skilled person or a wizard, the operation time is scheduled for the end of the year. It will be a little longer before you can experience this new sensation at the game center.

There will also be a “Magicians DEAD” presentation at the venue. Cosplayers dressed as game characters are also visible

Music game that everyone can feel like a pianist with a mysterious keyboard-type device
"nostalgia"

“Nostalgia” with “Piano” as a motif is a music game that plays the piano along with the ball flowing from the screen.

Moreover, it reflects the height and strength of the piano keys and reproduces even delicate touches. If the finger position roughly matches the score, the correct sound will be heard. Even those who cannot play the piano can easily enjoy the performance. The operation time has not been determined.
